The Sad Rich White People Movie is one of my favourite genres, and indeed the white people in this English-language remake of Danish film-maker's Susanne Bier's 2006 tearjerker are very sad and very rich.

For all of After the Wedding's narrative twists and turns, there's nothing here that feels close to earth-shaking.

Something about the story feels patly subservient, as if the film had no urgent issue to address but some good actors available to emote on cue.

The mystery has been dialled down, the treacle dialled up, and what we are left with is basically Eat Pray Love 2.

A limp and forgettable narrative gives us little to hold on to.

When a story earns it, most of us are happy to give up some tears; this one only thinks it does. That kills emotion, offering a facsimile of drama rather than the real thing.

Character judgments aside, "After the Wedding" wants emotional fireworks but comes up with duds.
August 29, 2019
After the Wedding doesn't so much as skip among its four main characters as arc and gyrate and generate emotional torque. It's intense - you break a sweat just keeping up.

The movie's biggest issue blooms from its core: it doesn't seem to know what kind of movie it wants to be.

For a supposed tearjerker, this film is so tone-deaf my guess is there won't be a wet eye in the house.
August 21, 2019
A beautifully acted drama with a tantalizing mystery at its center.

Is "After the Wedding" a great movie? No, not especially. Are these two women treasures of cinema? Absolutely.

After the Wedding is competently made and appealing in an exaggerated soap opera-tinged fashion but, as is often the case with remakes, the original is the stronger version and the next generation version fails to make a strong case for its raison d'être.

After the Wedding went from being the Sundance 2019 opener to an August leftover, which may tell you all you need to know.
August 15, 2019
There's a lot to be admired here, and "After the Wedding" certainly gives you a lot to think about. It just doesn't quite make you feel all the feels.

Freundlich's version... flips the genders of the story's two main characters but does little else to justify the time and resources spent on remaking Bier's world.
August 13, 2019
These women are powerhouses, and "After the Wedding" lets them share the screen. It's impossible to dislike a movie that does that.
August 13, 2019
[A] mesmerizing double master class in acting.
August 12, 2019
It's okay, but given all who is in it, you'd have reason to have high expectations.
August 9, 2019
Freundlich's script keeps hopscotching right past the good stuff.
